Open for over 30 years, and used by 6,000+ students and adults each year free of charge, the Francis M. Malcolm Institute (Francis Malcolm Science Center), supported by the Malcolm Trust, is facing a critical time.


Without $1,500,000.00 in donations to the Trust, the Science Center, that has served students from County schools, home schooled students, individuals with disabilities, civic organizations, scout groups, and the general public, will be forced to close within the next two years.  Plan a visit to the Science Center during regular operating hours of 9 AM - 3 PM during the school year, or by appointment, to see what the Center is all about.


Please consider a donation to keep this educational institution available for future citizens of Aroostook County.  As a 501(C)3 organization, all donations to Francis Malcolm Institute are tax deductible as allowed by the Internal Revenue Service.
